WEARable HAPtics for Humans and Robots

Project description

Cognitive Systems and Robotics The complexity of the world around us is creating a demand for cognition-enabled interfaces that will simplify and enhance the way we interact with the environment. WEARHAP aims at laying the scientific and technological foundations for wearable haptics, a novel concept for the systematic exploration of haptics in advanced cognitive systems and robotics that will redefine the way humans will cooperate with robots.  Wearable haptics will enable robots to observe humans during natural interaction with their shared environment. Applications cover robotics, health and social scenarios, stretching from human-robot interaction and cooperation for search and rescue, to human-human communication and interaction with virtual worlds through interactive games.
